05-03-18 Zabe’el Camels

Monday 5th March 2018

Just back from our neighbourhood in the Dubai Financial Centre is a caravan of community camels. Its a fair walk away and we hit some patches of sandy desert. But worth the traipse.

Camels in the UAE are revered, with annual beauty contests though this year we had a few disqualifications due to their keepers using BOTOX on them. To enhance their awning-like eye lashes we were told.

We feed them carrots & apple and they wink at us…
